Critical Loads of Tall Building Frames

In a previous paper' we have pointed out the desirability of being able to calculate the critical load of building frames. This paper shows how the sway critical load of any symmetrical single bay frame may be obtained. It also gives the results of numerical calculations for a particular case and an extension to many bay frames. W. Merchant
